So, there you have it. It’s the evil liberals’ fault that the birthers have made such a fuss. It certainly had nothing to do with the many Republican senators who refused to sign a bill celebrating HI as a state, which just so happened to mention that President Obama was born there. Naw. Republicans are really mad at HI and just don’t want to acknowledge the state. Just cuz. Stop asking questions.
Jon Stewart has now earned the wrath of Rush Limbaugh for getting Bill Kristol to admit on The Daily Show that government run healthcare works. Limbaugh said that Stewart is a sell out for using the military as healthcare example, because liberals like Stewart hate the military. Ugh, so now Rush is going after Jon Stewart.
The Thrilla from Wasilla who just a year ago was touted as the country’s most beloved Governor (a statistic that had NOTHING to do with her socialistic program of sending thousands of dollars from the oil companies to each Alaskan citizen) is no longer a contender…..
Remember earlier this year when President Obama took office and suddenly the stock market plunge of October, 2008 was his fault? Each little or large market dip; a trust-worthy reflection of the job performance of our new POTUS? Sure, we can judge him on Jan 21, 2009 as a bad President, just look at the stock market! Well, look at the market now.
According to an analysis done by The New York Observer, ever since Lou Dobbs started discussing President Obama’s birth certificate on his CNN program, his ratings have taken a nosedive. Dobbs has lost 15% of his total viewers, and 27% of viewers in the 25-54 demographic.
On his radio show today Lou Dobbs got it all wrong when he praised Jon Stewart of The Daily Show for accurately reporting his Obama citizenship comments. The problem is that Stewart was making fun of Dobbs, not reporting what Dobbs was saying. Here is the audio of Dobbs and the video of Jon Stewart.
The closer Democrats get to healthcare reform, the more Republicans and the health insurance industry whip up the scare tactics. From Rush Limbaugh claiming that the elderly with be euthanized to the lies spread around by Betsy McCaughey, the battle over healthcare reform is centered on life, death, and disinformation.
According to Broadcast and Cable media giant Clear Channel has already passed on the chance to give former Alaska governor Sarah Palin her own radio show. Clear Channel turned her down because they weren’t sure that she could handle talking for 15 live hours a week. Palin might not find as many takers for her services as she thought.
After MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow mocked CNN’s Lou Dobbs for calling her the, “tea bagger queen” yesterday on her show, Dobbs fired back today on his show. He referred to Maddow as, “a lunatic among the lily livered, limp minded, lefty lemmings.” Dobbs, who has “questions” about Obama’s citizenship, thinks Maddow is mentally unstable. That’s a laugh.
Tuesday’s episode of MSNBC’s the Ed Show included a segment on the return of Michael Vick to football. PETA, the animal rights extremist group is demanding that Vick undergo a brain scan first. The scan is to determine to the satisfaction of PETA that he is sufficiently rehabilitated. Do not support PETA’s demand for a brain scan of Michael Vick.
On his radio show today, Glenn Beck stood by his claim that President Barack Obama is a racist, who has problems with white people. Beck said, “I deem him a racist based on really his own standard of racism.” So a man that is half white has racial issues with white people. This makes absolutely no sense.
On his radio show today Lou Dobbs took shots at both FNC’s Gerald Rivera and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow for disproving his birther claims. Dobbs called Rivera, “severely intellectually challenged,” and Maddow a leftist lady “tea bagging queen who twisted his words.” He also called her a liar. Somehow, I don’t think Maddow is much into tea bagging.
Pat Buchanan figured it was just another day on “Hardball” with Chris Matthews, defending the brilliance and relevance of the apple of his eye…oops, I mean, the apple of his party, Sarah Palin. But this particular time Pat opened his mouth, Freud reared his mind over tongue theory, and now the ball is a rollin’.
Today on his radio show Rush Limbaugh, went into full let’s scare some old people about healthcare mode, as he told his elderly listeners that their medical costs were too high. “Limbaugh said people at a certain age with certain diseases will be deemed not worth the investment…” He laid out his vision of stopping healthcare by mobilizing the elderly against it.
Glenn Beck showed up on FNC’s Fox and Friends today to declare that President Barack Obama is a guy who has exposed himself as a guy who has a deep seated hatred for white people and white culture. Beck said, “I am not saying he doesn’t like white people…I believe this guy is a racist.” In the end, this is just more race based politics from Beck, FNC, and the GOP.
I don’t know about you, but I’m just sittin’ here imagining the horrors that will be bestowed upon this great nation when empathy is brought to the bench. And not just empathy, my fellow real Americans, but empathy with a point of view, other than rich white man (or Other masquerading as such).
They were literally seconds from accomplishing the vote, so they could move to more important things. Things like Republican Thadeus McCotter’s bill to force President Obama to apologize (down on your knees, boy!) — clearly a much better use of their time; Michigan must be so proud — when at the very last second, Republican Rep. Michele “Crazy Eyes” Bachmann tried to be a “good Republican” (oxymoron or just moron?) who would save the birthers by blocking the vote! Go, Michelle!!
On his FNC program The O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly debunked CNN’s Lou Dobbs birther talk about Barack Obama, but argued that Dobbs should not be fired. First Coulter and now O’Reilly, the Republican is media is running full sprint away from the birthers.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor today to make a statement that even by his lofty standards was out there. Inhofe claimed that using oil and gasoline doesn’t create pollution. The senator said, “Their argument there is “Well, we don’t want to use oil and gas because we think it pollutes” — which it doesn’t.” I guess Exxon bought his common sense along with his vote.
Ann Coulter was recently on FNC’s Geraldo at Large where she said that Lou Dobbs is wrong about President Obama’s citizenship. “I do want to point out that every conservative publication dealt with this, and said that there was nothing to this.” Coulter called the birthers just a few cranks out there. Strange days have come indeed.
